I’ve been carrying a special secret close to my heart. I’ll be welcoming a new grandchild into my brood this fall! It’s definately time to get knitting, but I’m not too excited about breaking out wool in our current 100 degree temperature. I decided to create a soft and scrumptious, reversible little cotton washcloth for our new arrival. Made from soft sport weight cotton, this knitted washcloth pattern creates one side smoother and one more textured, perfect for cleaning the tenderest skin, (nothing but the best for my Grandkids!) Roll them into fat little rolls for gifting.
These are sweet for new babies but sophisticated enough for spa face cloths as well!
